Overview

Here is the first volume in the Ghost Towns of Michigan series, featuring 33 of Michigan's most fascinating ghost towns, along with numerous historic photographs.  These are stories of land speculators, wildcat bankers, boom-and-bust lumber barons, pioneers who refused to give up, and small towns with big ideas that didn't quite pan out.
